Alisdair „féasóg gabhar“ Ó Súilleabháin,
nickname „féasóg gabhar“ (goats beard), was born in 1704 at Doirín Amhlaoibh, Kilcrohane, Barony of Dunkerron on the Iveragh Peninsula in Ireland's province of Munster. He used to be a "tábhairneoir" owning his own tavern. Since the tavern was located in an area where a lot of English settlers lived, he also speaks English and knows some of their songs. And as a publican-landlord he was happy earning some riches.
In the 1740s a famine struck Ireland so he and his spouse Gráinne left the country as Alisdair joined the Irish Brigade of the French army.
After the battle of Dettingen, Corporal O'Súilleabháin was captured by British troops. He got lucky and his wife Gráinne managed to set him free. On their run they met some Highlanders in France. Alisdair has heard rumours that a Scottish regiment will be raised and together they are trying to reach St. Omer, the garrison of this to-be-raised regiment. .
Gráinne Úi Shúilleabháin (ní Peadar),
was born 1708 on the Beara Peninsula in the province of Munster, Ireland. She married Alisdair in 1728 and I then became the landlady of his tavern.
In the 1740s a famine struck Ireland so she and her spouse Alisdair left the country as he joined the Irish Brigade of the French army.
